Henrico, VA (WWBT)- While Dylan Jackson has taken a majority of the snaps for 8-0 Hermitage this season, Kire Worley has served as a solid second option, and has seen his fair share of time under center for the Panthers. While Worley's talents may not move him ahead of Jackson for that technical number one quarterback job, they do earn him a spot on a Division I football team.
Worley has verbally committed to the University of Richmond to continue his career at the college level. He's helped the Panthers to a likely Colonial District title, not only at quarterback, but on the other side of the ball as a defensive back as well. The senior transferred to Hermitage from Louisa County High School after last year. Hermitage athletic director Chris Rollison confirmed that Worley had made his commitment.
Worley becomes the second member of this year's Hermitage team to commit to a Division I school, as lineman Andre Miles-Redmond will attend the University of Virginia next season.
